Setting the Tone for Your Workplace with Custom Home Office Furniture
Ideally, home offices should vary tremendously from person to person. Your custom home office furniture should be uniquely suited to your needs and space requirements. Custom cabinets should be designed to hold your documents or other materials efficiently and conveniently. Furniture pieces such as custom desks should be built to suit your tasks and the way you prefer to work. There is another dimension to your home office space that deserves custom consideration, too. Whether you regularly meet clients in your home office or are a solitary remote telecommuter, your workplace has a tone and atmosphere that can impact everything that happens there.
What is the message you want your home office to convey, even if the only one who will receive that message is you?
As a practical consideration, home office space may have to be multi-purpose, but that doesn’t mean your workspace should be an afterthought to your home’s overall design. The artisans of TYME Furniture Studio created a two-story mahogany trophy room that includes a home office, custom storage with a display cabinet and window seat, a pub bar, wine cellar, gun room, and a pop-up flat screen TV that can turn this room into a home theater. Take a look at the detailed pictures of this room on the project page to see how the home office is well integrated with the design and multiple uses of this unique space with one strong personality.
Even if you have a dedicated room for your home office, it can still have multiple modes of use. A successful CEO commissioned Superior Woodcraft, Inc., to build a room that would be both a “fully functioning office as well as a personal retreat.” This home office in knotty pine provides all the required storage and utility space in a manner that conceals office equipment such as the CPU, printer, and fax, while the choice of wood “provides a warm natural comforting feeling.”
Your personal collection of artwork and décor items displayed on custom shelves can help put your unique stamp on your home office. Brushaber Wood Design “can build a multifunctional piece” like this integrated office and art display shelving that will “feature your prized possessions while hiding the stuff you don’t want to see.” The spaces and shelves for this piece were designed to fit specific artworks from this client’s collection, and the curved corner shelves were custom cut to allow the light from the window to flow through the unit.
